Waterways of Cheshire Itinerary
Sunday We depart Cornwall in the morning and travel to Cheshire arriving at our hotel early in the evening.
Monday Our day starts in the charming city of Chester with a tranquil, 30 minute cruise on the River Dee including commentary. There will be time at leisure before we travel to the Wirral Peninsula for a visit to the award winning Ness Botanic Gardens, founded in 1898 by Arthur Kilpin Bulley, a cotton merchant with a passion for gardens and plant collecting.
Tuesday This morning we take to the canal for a cruise through the beautiful Vale of Llangollen and across the Pontcysllte Aqueduct, or ‘Stream in the Sky’. An interesting commentary will give us an insight into the history of the area. There will be time to browse around Llangollen, before travelling over the spectacular Horseshoe Pass to the small market town of Ruthin.
Wednesday The magnificent Anderton Boat Lift takes us on a cruise with a difference. The amazing structure lifts our boat from the River Weaver to the Trent and Mersey Canal high above. The excellent visitor centre houses an exhibition on the lift’s history and its control centre. On then to the pleasant market town of Nantwich.
Thursday After breakfast we begin our journey south and arrive home during the evening.
